Christopher Metropulos and guests Eikona; Presvytera Stacey Dorrance, Presvytera Marika Brown, and Chrysanthy Therianos will discus as three sisters who love to sing started their ministry in answer to the question from their husbands, “What are you doing with your talents?”

They have offered the hymns of our faith to the English-speaking world for
almost 30 years and inspire church musicians to answer the same call… to
grow in their faith and use their musical talents to serve the Holy Orthodox
Church. May every Orthodox Christian Church in America have beautiful
music! Let visitors come to our parishes and, for the beauty of the music,
(such as was beheld by the emissaries of Prince Vladimir at Hagia Sophia)
“…know not whether they are in heaven or on earth!”

    Eikona is three sisters who love to chant. Presvytera Stacey Dorrance, Presvytera Marika Brown, and Chrysanthy Therianos started their ministry over 28 years ago, at the urging of their husbands and in answer to the question, “What are you doing to use your talents for the Church?” Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, they grew up in the community of the Assumption Greek Orthodox Cathedral. They were raised in a loving, musical home where church attendance was not optional, but rather, an extension of their parents’ love for music and the church. Each sister has four children, many married and starting families of their own. Their mission is to bring beautiful English Byzantine Chant to the world. Their love of liturgical worship and desire to grow in their own faith inspires them to continue their music ministry. Presvytera Stacey is both the co-chanter and assistant choir director in her parish of St. Catherine’s, in Greenwood Village, Colorado. She is also Chair of the Byzantine Music Education Committee of the National Forum as well as a Chant teacher specializing in helping parishes form Byzantine Choirs across the country (and even in Australia), via Zoom. Presvytera Marika is head chanter at her parish of Sts. Peter and Paul in Boulder, Colorado, as well as a host to many of their parish ministries. Chrysanthy is the choir director at the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Theotokos in Denver, Colorado, as well as a chanter. She is the President of the Metropolis Music Ministry, a composer of music, and an Ace Bowler!
